Pictures


Hard to focus when you are bleary eyed.
From February
I have been lazy and forgeting to upload pictures for my nights out. You might be lucky and I might remember to upload video clips of Dita in CSI, she wasnt bad but it was like an okay TV movie, the storyline was so forced and a bit lazy, the camera shot sequences shocking and badly old school ( shot through a glass, Dita, sorry sorry Rita is revealed. I stopped watching CSi when the character Grissom left, but based on this eposide I think its had its day.

The Spotlight on Forever Lovely Vintage


Since it looks like my buying days are over until I can repay my home moving loan (6months), I thought l would share the sellers I am most interested in owning a piece of. Unfortuntely I missed out on a dress I wanted as I was waiting for that overtime and purchased that Horrockses. It debuted last Friday when I was doing particularely nothing. The images above are of some the clothes availabe, theres even a Swirl.

Thanks for the Blues


I feel the need to give a a shout out to the difficult flatemate who has caused me nothing but stress,who has know just turned things from bad to worse. You see the yesterday she went on a rant to the landlord about how she needs to live by herself (great move out your a dirty and crazy cow). And the landlord agreed as well because the elctricity bill was double because the new girl was putting her heating on all day and night. So now hes thinking of selling or moving into the flat in 3 months, don't know whats worse. So heres to you, you selfish wailing banshee, I hope you meet something who so selfish who drains the energy out of you. I hope you get the marriage you deserve. Thanks for making the next 3months the worst of my life, as I now have to look for another dive and hope my family can lend me money so I can pay for it. Here's two fingers to you (insert other curse word)you cunt.
Things I might of afford if I earned more then just pay the bills.

Best laid plans

Yesterday I was meant to take my Aunt to a Gallery and then we would visit Grays Antique market were I would um and arr about whether I should buy £15 costume earrings and then be sad I couldn't buy a Bakelite broach. Instead the dog became sick (trip to vet) and the adaptor gave up the ghost; so went to a Computer Fair, at a campus building(off Tottenham Court Road. My big day out!
And we saw this unusual and ugly building, this is the side view, the front looks like some perspex box.

The fundraising Game

I had a feeling yesterday that if I didn't do something I would miss out. I went to the assessment I bought CV, passport and bank details. I wasn't asked for any of
(weird), I didn't get an interview (more weirdness). Then was told I got the gig, the other guy who was also selected asked what our targets were, I was too excited to ask. We have one months trial only and had 5 people a day to sign up at £10. I was so excited I had to call someone. Later on I started thinking why would someone donate £10 a month when so many charities are begging for money? On the, train it was for Japan, at a store it was little children's charity at work its for cancer and children's and then you are sponsoring friends for walks or marathon. The answer was clearly no but it was nice to feel hopeful for a few hours. Should of taken a picture so that I can remember what happiness looks like.
At least I have chinese

Making a room a home

I have been thinking about making over my room, since, I have been living in the same flat for over a year. I know that paint is probably the only thing I can afford right now, but how to make it a real home.
This reminds me of the 50s chenille throw I had on my bed back in the old life.
Hats box make storage devices for over then hats.
Hat stands in a row can be a great feature.
Wouldn't these cushions look great in a French inspired room?
Look what I found on youtube

Paris Bound

I went to Paris for a Podiatry conference in April, and I could feel it, the unrest, the uncertainty, I felt the same in Germany, a loss of...
